TRANSGENDER MODEL TEDDY QUINLIVAN IS THE FACE OF CHANEL’S NEW CAMPAIGN

If you didn’t already recognise game-changing model, Teddy Quinlivan then you definitely will now. Having starred in MILK Make-Up’s Kush mascara campaign, and Redken’s Colour Gel Lacquers promo shoot, she’s become the in-demand face that’s championed inclusivity every step of the way.

The 25-year old’s new gig sees her starring in Chanel’s new beauty campaign, no less. Not only are the images for the fashion house’s ‘Summer Look’ totally beautiful, but the photo series marks a huge step towards inclusivity for the luxury brand. Why? Because Quinlivan will be the first openly transgender model to work for Chanel.

Quinlivan came out as transgender in 2017 and since then has been a consistent presence at Fashion Week. Having walked for numerous brands, the Boston native also starred in Louis Vuitton’s 2018 campaign, not to mention an array of magazine covers and even hosted her own TED Talk.

Here’s to more big brands taking the step to prioritise representation in the future – hopefully, this is just the beginning.
